My goal is to use a cable internet connection and share it via wi-fi to my phone. Trouble is my phone doesn't see the wi-fi network I created. I am aware that there are a lot of tutorials on how to do this and a lot of troubleshooting tips around. I have tried everything I could find but no luck so far. What I have done so far: Enabled sharing on cable connection's adapter. Crated ad hoc network and connected the wi-fi adapter to it. Made sure IP addresses are automatic. Temporarily turned off firewall. Temporarily turned off user account control. Made sure all relevant services are running. Restarted the adapters. Restarted the computer. Let Windows look for problems with the adapters. The main idea for having the screenshot is the red X on the wireless connection. It sais it's not connected even after it is connected to the ad hoc network. I haven't worked out if that is OK or not. Hope you can help.
